EAN 2023 | Exploring spinal cord reserve in multiple sclerosis

Jaume Sastre-Garriga, MD, PhD, Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona, Spain, discusses a recent study validating the use of spinal canal area (SCaA) as a proxy for spinal cord reserve. Notably, the study indicates that a larger SCaA may be protective against disability in multiple sclerosis (MS), supporting the existence of spinal cord reserve. Dr Sastre-Garriga highlights the clinical significance of this concept, proposing its integration with brain reserve and physical reserve theories in managing MS. An ongoing observational study seeks to explore the impact of these reserves on clinical outcomes in patients with MS. This interview took place at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 Congress in Budapest, Hungary.
